    Hi,

    My gps doesn't work after the latest HTC desire firmware update, it used to work ok now it doesnt, can anyone help? Checked the options in the location settings, and the option "use gps satellites" is ticked and yes I'm standing under clear blue sky :)

    Tried using Gps test, gps status it just won't pick up a gps signal, waited for like 10-15 minutes.

    Cheers,

    Kezz

    I'm on that firmware.... Came preloaded in fact. I can assure you my GPS works fine. All I can think of is perhaps some software is locking\blocking GPS communication or possibly you have a faulty unit. Might be worth shutting down and trying a battery pull.
    Fixes a multitude of problems :D

    Unless anyone can come up with a better idea I can only suggest a factory reset or contacting HTC as you might have a faulty unit. i take it you are on a standard ROM and not rooted

    nacatomi, yeah I'm on standard ROM, well I was going to give my desire to service due to very poor loudspeaker quality anyway, will let them have a look at the gps thing too..

    thanks for your help.
